I was out at the Open Jam Night at The Brandyhouse, and I saw an awesome trio called
"Bonobos Convergence" or something like that. Turns out the guitarist was none other than Vaylor Trucks, son of Butch. They only had time to play a few songs, but what I heard of them, They were sick!! I heard they will playing their own show on The Tuesday before Thanksgving, the 22nd at The Brandyhouse. Hope to see you all there.

Peace

How good is Vaylor? I wonder how he feels about Derek being so incredibly unbelivably phenomonal?

I have never had the honor nor the pleasure of meeting Vaylor but in reading his posts over the years and listening to their "tone" = something tells me he is a very solid and measured player who is comfortable with his abilities where ever and how ever they are delivered.

Being compared to Derek is just not pertinent or meaningful.

They are cousins and probably have a respectful and friendly relationship based upon mutual respect and blood.

Glad to hear Vaylor is out there......."playin'.......like a wave upon the sand."

I wonder if he ever plays "Sand".

I'll bet he is a funny sort and smart too.........apples don't fall far from the tree.

Great guitarist.

Solid and measured is a good way to describe him. He a Derek are much different guitarists. Would be fun to hear them together . . .

mmmm Sand

I talked to Vaylor a few weeks ago and he seemed excited about Bonobos Convergence.

(Bonobos are a kind of African ape, by the way. They are most known for their swinging, free-love lifestyle, which involves having sex pretty much all the time, with everyone in the tribe, constantly. This has useful sociological implications, such as the fact that Bonobos are very non-violent and have never been seen to kill one another, possibly because they are very, very tired)

Vaylor's previous band Yeti was a very adventuresome improvisational trio, and I wouldn't be surprised to see some of that sense of spirited madness in this project. He is truly a master musician in his own right and knows as much or more about music theory as anyone I've ever met. If the other guys have similar musical tastes, expect a strong Zappa influence and hearty, rigorous jazz chops.

He is both funny and smart. Colonel Bruce says he's the third smartest person he's ever met after Frank Zappa and Billy Bob Thornton. If the Colonel says it, you know it's true!

Yes, that's Vaylor. The young girl on the back is Brittany Oakley.

People magazine ran a "Where Are They Now?" piece that mentioned them, among others, in their 6/17/96 issue.

"I have an almost dreamlike memory of the way things were--parties, people giving the horses beer, various people in and out." That's how Brittany Oakley, 27, daughter of Allman Brothers' bassist Berry Oakley, recalls the communal life she shared as a toddler with the band members and their families at the group's Juliette, Ga., farm. "There was always something crazy going on," agrees Vaylor Trucks, 25, son of drummer Butch Trucks. The idyllic portion of their childhood was captured on 1973's 7 million-selling Brothers and Sisters album: Vaylor got the front cover; Oakley, the back. Despite her smile, Oakley, now a Chicago massage therapist, had just lost her father in a motorcycle crash and was soon to leave the farm. "Suddenly my dad wasn't here," she says. "It was painful." Trucks, a newly-married Atlanta computer specialist, left when his parents separated in 1973, but he basks in his past. While at Florida State University, the amateur guitarist started his own band. "We made up posters of the album cover that said, 'Have you seen me lately?' " he reports. "The place sold out."

A photo caption reads "People thought we were naked hippie kids," says Oakley, back on the farm with Trucks (and in '72). "Look at us now. I've got his hair, and he's got mine."

Yes I am in Bonobos Convergance now. For those of you that are interested, the web site is http://www.bonobosmusic.com. I believe there is just a placeholder there now,but the updates will be up soon.

This band started off as a duo - drums and organ / keys - with two former members of the Orlando-based band Kynda: Frank Registrato and Pete Orenstein. I was added originally to cover the low-end either with bass or MIDI guitar - but as the arrangements have progressed, my part continues to evolve. Now Pete and I share low-end duties fairly equally on most songs.

Anyway, I hope you can all make it to our show on Nov 22 at the Brandyhouse. Maybe I'll have some sort of special give aways for those folks that say that they heard about the show on this forum.

...as for how I feel about "Derek being so incredibly unbelivably phenomonal," I feel great about it - just as I feel great about John Scofield, Jimmy Herring, John McLaughlin, Pat Martino, Ralph Towner, (etc etc) "being so incredibly unbelivably phenomonal". More good music is always better than less good music.

I went to see Derek at the Les Paul birthday party at Carnegie Hall a few months back where I got to see Pat Martino for the first time and all I can say is...WOW!!!! I need to see that man again. Bucky Pizzarelli and Tommy Emmanuel were pretty damn awesome too. Thanks for posting Vaylor, I really enjoyed seeing you at the Fox show last year, I believe it was One Way Out you really tore it up on, I hope your band makes it up to the NY/NJ area, I'd love to check you guys out.

Thanks for personally answering the question Vaylor. It's always good to get it fromt he horse's mouth.

I got to see Vaylor sit in with the ABB on "Southbound," in Louisville 95. I thought he did a terrific job. Hope the band comes down to central Florida or Wanee.

Thanks for the kind words brother.

Heard about the postings here and thought i might chime in.

The past few months have been extremely enjoyable getting ready for the show on November 22nd. If you haven't had the pleaure of hearing Vaylor or Pete play you should mark your calendar for the Brandyhouse show. They are rippin' it up in rehearsal and with the energy of live performance coming in to play, the show should be a real treat.

We really appreciate all the support and interest from ABB fans and hope everyone can make it out.

This was a great show! Very impressive for Vaylor's first "official" gig with the Bonobos Convergence. The first tune they played was a rigorously composed prog-jazz masterpiece that I really enjoyed. They played a few songs from Frank and Pete's band Kynda, as well as a cover of Paul Simon's "50 Ways to Leave Your Lover," but I liked the new material best of all. Vaylor was absolutely on fire! Any musician would love this band, Frank and Pete are also very talented musicians. I hated to leave early, but my wife and I had to work today.

Way to go Vaylor!

I check in on Pete's site from time to time, and saw that you had joined up with him and Frank. I saw Kynda (formerly 4:20) a few times -- they were always kind of the crux of the jam scene here in Orlando.


Was Tony Hume in the Orlando band 4:20? He used to frequent the old ARU netspace web-site, as well as the old ARU listserv. I don't think I ever met the guy in person, but seemed very nice by way of e-mail and postings to the listserv. We corresponded several times about different Unitarian-related things. Haven't heard from him in prolly 5 years though, since whenever the old ARU listserv went bye-bye.

We have some additional dates to announce:

December 28 at the Brandyhouse
- this will be one of the very last times anyone will ever play at the Brandyhouse, as they will be closing their doors at the end of the year

New Years Eve - Camp Jam 06 - New Smyrna Beach, FL
See http://myspace.com/campjam06 for directions and band lineup. This should be a lot of fun.

In addition, it looks like we are going to be a part of some relatively large festivals this spring and summer. Stay tuned - or go to http://www.bonobosmusic.com for all the latest

I want to thank Vaylor, Frank and Pete for letting me sit in with them at the Brandy House the other day. The band sounded great, and they courteously acquiesced to my request to play congas on "Get Up Stand Up" and "Wonder," an original instrumental of theirs.

Vaylor said that the band should be at Wanee Fest this year, and I encourage you all to check them out. Really talented musicians with some great songs, all the Yes fans and other prog-rock lovers need to make a point of hearing the Bonobos Convergence!

Best of luck to you with your music kattrucks -- with the talent that runs in the Trucks family, I'm sure it's going to be really well received on its own merits for the good music it is.
